A multi-faceted wine metropolis –the City of Heilbronn

Where Heinrich Kleist’s “Käthchen”, the course of the Neckar and Germany’s largest red grape growing area meet, is the City of Heilbronn, which was officially documented for the first time in 741 as “Helibrunna”. Goethe celebrated his 48th birthday on Heilbronn’s Wartberg with wine from the region and you can still enjoy it on the popular mile of restaurants along the river today. Locations like the historical “Trappenseeschlösschen”, the “Experimenta” science museum or the Emma 23 event space always make a trip to Heilbronn worthwhile.
